collection in Europe
Museo Civico Archeologico1
Why locals love it
The Museo Civico Archeologico came about as the result of several universities collections, which merged in 1881. It is home to one of the most comprehensive Egyptian collections in Europe, a rich Etruscan collection, and extensive Greek and Roman works.
Why you should visit it
Not a lot of people is aware that Bologna hosts one of the biggest Egyptian collection in Europe. Visiting this museum is a dive into the past, with Etruscan (which will reopen in 2019) and Greek collections. Curious to see a cat mummy?
